Bad hotel
Where to start. They dont have their own airport transfer. When I asked to arrange they just gave me a local number. No one to carry out your luggage from your car. Took forever to give the room. By the way prices at which I booked at the agent website was different than the prices at the hotel. So they charged me extra. The room they gave me was like stains on WC. Towels lying on the floor. Used paper tissues all over. They changed my room when I blasted on them. Went to the bar. It took 50 mns for a sandwich. And when I decided to go in my room asked the waiter to provide the sandwich there. It took me 3 hours and so many calls to get that sandwich in my room. By the way delivered stale sandwich. Wont recommend this hotel to anyone.
